Sounds great.

I've been discussing the issue of the module name a bit with Emmanuel
and we concluded that a non-binding recommendation in an appendix to
the BV 2.0 spec should be alright. I've filed PR
https://github.com/beanvalidation/beanvalidation-spec/pull/174 for it,
saying:

    "While not specified by this specification, Bean Validation
providers are encouraged to use the module name `java.validation`
in case they provide the Bean Validation API as a module for the Java
Platform Module System (as defined by JSR 376).
A mandatory module name - which may be `java.validation` or another
one - will be defined in a future revision of this specification."

This leaves the door open for choosing another value - and making it
mandatory - down the road, while letting 2.0 providers converge on one
non-officially sanctioned name for the time being (which is needed for
the migration between providers).
